Due to a reporter's error, the comparative magnitude of the tailings facility at Kennecott Greens Creek Mine was wrong in the first line of a front page story Sunday. The 40-acre facility is one of the smallest in the United States. Even if it doubles in size, as Kennecott Greens Creek Mine Co. is requesting, the tailings facility will be about 100 times smaller than the 7,000-acre tailings facilities found elsewhere, said Keith Marshall, Greens Creek mine general manager.
